Overview

The Vietnam War examines the conflict from its origins through to 1975 and North Vietnam’s victory. This new revised edition is completely up-to-date with current academic debates and includes new source material.

Mitchell Hall explores all the key elements of the conflict, including:

· US motivations for entering the war and the military strategies employed

· The role of the media

· The rise of domestic opposition

· The war’s impact in the US and Vietnam.

Mitchell Hall provides numerous insights into the political decisions of the Vietnamese communists, and Vietnam’s relations with other major powers, particularly China and the Soviet Union.

The main text is supported by a comprehensive documents section, and a range of study tools, including a Chronology of events, Who's Who, a Glossary of terms and a Further Reading section. Concise yet thorough, the book provides students with an accessible and stimulating introduction to the war.

Mitchell K. Hall is Professor of History at Central Michigan University. He is the author of Because of Their Faith (1990) and Crossroads: American Popular Culture and the Vietnam Generation (2005).
